This recipe goes perfectly with yesterday’s recipe for spicy nuts. Use your favorite pretzel varieties, any shape. Give in a gift basket with the spicy nuts and their favorite beverage and your set. Tasty alternative to the giant tins of popcorn you can get at the grocery store. Also this is a great item to bring to a holiday party, were there will be lots of sweets this salty snack will sand out.
4 10 oz packages of pretzels
1 cup vegetable oil
1 envelope ranch salad dressing mix (I suggest Hidden Valley)
1 tablespoon stake seasoning (McCormick’s Grill Mates Montreal Steak Seasoning is good)
2 to 3 teaspoons cayenne pepper
1 teaspoon dill weed
Empty pretzels into a large bowl. In a small bowl combine the oil, and seasonings. Pour over pretzels and toss to coat. Transfer coated pretzels to two 9×13 baking pans and bake for 50-60 minutes stirring after every 15 in a 250 degree oven. Once cool store in an air tight container. Give in a tin or decorated container alone or as part of a gift basket.
